The NBA's Newest, Funnest Rivalry Is Anthony Davis vs. Boogie Cousins

"I think you and I are destined to do this forever."

NBA fans were treated to what might be the league's most entertaining rivalry for the next 10 years on Tuesday night. Two of the best big men in the game squared off: New Orleans' Anthony Davis and Sacramento's DeMarcus Cousins. Both top-five draft picks out of Kentucky and teammates on Team USA this summer, The Brow and Boogie traded highlight-reel plays throughout the game. Everything was on display: Dunks, blocks, and circus layups.

Davis poured in 28 points as the Pelicans overcame Cousins' double-double (24 points and 17 rebounds) for a hard-fought 106-100 victory. The result left the two young stars 4-4 in head-to head games and the only ones in the league who are averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds per game this season, via ESPN Stats and Info.

With Davis just 21 years old and Cousins at age 24, fans should be able to look forward to years of such must-watch matchups.
